What is Teen Court?
Teen Court is a alternative, voluntary program, which offers young offenders an opportunity to make restitution for an offense through community service, specialized classes and jury service, thus avoiding fines and keeping the juvenile’s record clear. By bringing the teens before a jury of their peers, which sentences them to constructive service in a community service organization and jury duty, this program seeks to deter teens from future unlawful behavior, while providing direct experience in the judiciary system and an understanding of their future role as a productive citizen. For more information, please see the
Teen Court fact sheet
